Stories with a purpose

I was delighted to listen to the first episode of B4M—Bridges 4 Mission—from International Ministries' Short Term Mission Team. Rev. Sandra Dorsainvil and Minister Nicole Cox co-host this new series of stories and reflections from and about short term cross-cultural mission service. In Episode 1, my friends Sharon Koh and Jim Bell share stories and learning from their own experiences doing international short term mission. Cathy Slade and I look back at a couple of our own early short term mission experiences as divine encounters and turning points in our journeys with Jesus. That is what these folks desire for you and your team. Have a listen!
